Taylor Hawkins

The Foo Fighters are back with their best album for a decade - the sublime Wasting Light. To celebrate we sat Taylor Hawkins down with his old buddy Danny Goffey (of Supergrass fame) to find out all about the making of the record, sweat-drenched warm-up shows and the Foos' return from the brink. We also get a kit tour from Taylor's tech and talk to super producer Butch Vig about knob twiddling in Dave Grohl's garage.
